Musée des Automates, Limoux

#5 of 10 in Things to do in Limoux
Gain a new appreciation for uncanny automation at Musée des Automates, a museum featuring about 250 automatic puppets, nearly all created in the site's workshop. Don't be alarmed when these puppets start moving--they are designed to. The owner of the museum creates each item in a workshop, which you can usually tour if you ask. Explore seven rooms of animated puppets and objects made of metal, wood, and paper dating from the 19th century. Put Musée des Automates into our Limoux vacation route planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

    Welcome to the top, fairly interesting and beautiful, the person explains his craft with a lot of passion and answer with pleasure to our curiosities €6 for adults and € 4 for children seems correct to me.
